Great seafood restaurant. Can be a bit noisy at times. They have great specials at lunchtime also. They had a special on crab legs on Thursday nights for awhile, but have discontinued this special from their menu. Wish they would bring it back again.

There is no dress code, regular dress attire. Can get gift certificates as far as I know and still one of favorites to go. They have no delivery service. Best time to go, anytime.
